Java Plugin for 64bit browsers


Hi everybody!

I checked at http://java.sun.com/ website, and came along with this ...

"Get the Java SE 6 Update 12 Now!
Highlights include the highly anticipated 64-bit Java Plug-In (for 64-bit browsers only), Windows Server 2008 support, and performance improvements of Java and JavaFX applications.
Download the update"

Well, I downloaded the update, and installed jre at /opt/java directory.
I noticed that in /opt/java/jre1.6.0_12/lib/amd64 directory there are a number of *.so files like libjava.so ,libjavaplugin_jni.so ,libjawt.so ...e.t.c

I also noticed that in /opt/java/jre1.6.0_12/plugin/desktop directory there are two files: sun_java.desktop and sun_java.png. What to do with them ?

I made a S-link pointing to the 3 above *.so files in my /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins directory (where there is also my flashplayer plugin) but I could not make my iceweasel to load any java plugin at startup.

What am I doing wrong ?
PS: I have Debian/Lenny AMD64 distro and I can't use any 32bit java plugin also, with my iceweasel.

Please help!

Vas

I would recommend that you start by reading the installation instructions on Sun's website. Read them carefully, because you will be redirected from the 64-bit instructions to the 32-bit instructions to the JDK instructions in order to get the browser plugin installed.

There is a 64 bit Java plugin using non-free contrb unstable repo.

icedtea-gcjwebplugin or icedtea6-plugin web browser plugin based on OpenJDK and IcedTea to execute Java applets amd64.

'libnpjp2.so' is the one you must symlink

Yes i know, and thank you! I've tried this before but there is a problem.
Some java applets don't run. Try for example the www.kiseido.com website, and try to play Go at their server. You'll see what I mean.
Probably icedtea is not absolutely compatible ...

I'll try the other solutions here and post the results ASAP...

Thank you all, my friends, for your sugestions.
But especially you H_TeXMeX_H . Indeed this is the one.
Now I have Java on my iceweasel. I guess this is also the trick for firefox (for the users of ubuntu!)

Best wishes!
